We are seeking full time animal caretakers for Crest Animal Hospital. This position is for individuals that love animals and want to be part of our support team. The job requires applicants to be able to lift 40 pounds and able to go up and down stairs. Team members will be in charge of caring for the boarding and hospitalized pets. This includes walking dogs and socializing cats. Attention to detail is important and our animal caretakers also are in charge of maintaining the inside and grounds of our facility. Some light veterinary assisting is included in this job description which requires restraining animals for the veterinarians, assisting in taking radiographs or other procedures, and collecting urine and fecal samples. Probably the most important aspect of this job is that these team members are our eyes and ears for the well being of the animals that we care for. Recognizing atypical behavior or changes in appetite are important observations that should be communicated to the nursing staff or the doctors.
Previous experience is not required and we will train the right applicants.
